Do You Find It Hard to Worship? | Psalm 95
Do you find it hard or even awkward to worship God? The truth is it’s easier than you think. You just have to choose to do it. Worship is a choice. In fact, it must always be a choice. God never coerces our worship. Jesus said in https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John%204%3A23-24&version=NIV (John 4:23-24) that God seeks true worshipers. In other words, God wants you to choose to worship him by your own free will. C.S. Lewis wrote that https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/799916-i-think-we-delight-to-praise-what-we-enjoy-because (in commanding us to glorify him, God is inviting us to enjoy him). Worshiping the true God is the most important ingredient to experiencing and enjoying God. You’ll never be happy if you don’t learn to worship God. And Psalm 95 is a great place in the Bible to learn how.
Psalm 95 ESV
1 Oh come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
2 Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
3 For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
4 In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also.
5 The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
6 Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker!
7 For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. Today, if you hear his voice,
8 do not harden your hearts, as at Meribah, as on the day at Massah in the wilderness,
9 when your fathers put me to the test and put me to the proof, though they had seen my work.
10 For forty years I loathed that generation and said, “They are a people who go astray in their heart, and they have not known my ways.”
11 Therefore I swore in my wrath, “They shall not enter my rest.”
